What is the meaning and the purpose of the Eucharist? How does celebrating the Eucharist connects people to the church?

  • the meaning of the eucharist is yo commemorate the last supper in which bred and wine are blessed and consumed
  • Church tradition teaches us that the eucharist, the last supper and how the apostles obeyed jesus' commands
  • this remembering the last supper became a tradition for christians when they gathered together. in the earliest time the eucharist was celebrated along with a shared meal in the homes of local christians

The history of the sacrament – • Why do we have it? • Where does it come from? How do we know where it came from?

  • the last supper appears in all three gospels: Matthew, Mark and Luke
  • it was also found in the first Epistle to the Corinthians which suggests how early christians celebrated what Paul the aostel called the Lord's Supper
  • Christian take past in the eucharist because they feel that they need to thank god and share this meal as a group just like the apostles did.

Prayers that relate to the Eucharist?

Sweetest Jesus,
Body and Blood most Holy,
be the delight and pleasure of my soul,
my strength and salvation in all temptations,
my joy and peace in every trial,
my light and guide in every word and deed,
and my final protection in death. Amen

O Christ, our Morning Star,

Splendour of Light Eternal,

shining with the glory of the rainbow,

come and waken us

from the greyness of our apathy,

And renew in us your gift of hope. Amen.

Come then, good Shepherd, bread divine,
Still show to us thy mercy sign;
Oh, feed us, still keep us thine;
So we may see thy glories shine
in fields of immortality.

O thou, the wisest, mightiest, best,
Our present food, our future rest,
Come, make us each thy chosen guest,
Co-heirs of thine, and comrades blest
With saints whose dwelling is with thee.
